A wart is a hard, calloused growth of the epidermis in the form of a cauliflower-shaped nodule. A wart is caused by a virus from the human papilloma (HPV) family. Some viruses cause warts on the skin, others on the mucous membranes. Warts often show up on the hands and feet.
Stretch marks are marks that can appear on the skin of the body when the skin grows rapidly. The best known example is that of a woman's stomach during pregnancy. However, they can also develop on breasts or thighs if they grow faster than the skin can keep up with. The connective tissue is torn subcutaneously by excessive tension, which is not painful, but does lead to purple-red marks that turn into white scars after a few years.
Rosacea kenmerkt zich door een felrood verkleurde huid, met name in het gebied rond de neus en de wangen. Er zijn gesprongen bloedvaatjes zichtbaar, maar vaak ook rode bultjes en puistjes. De meeste patiënten die rosacea hebben, denken dat ze ?gewoon? last hebben van acne. Dit komt met name door de aanwezigheid van de pukkeltjes in het aangedane gebied. Rosacea heeft echter niets met acne te maken en is een chronische huidaandoening.
A skin condition in which there is too much or too little pigment in the skin. There are different types of pigmentation spots. The most common types are age spots, a pregnancy mask (melasma) and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which develops after skin damage. A lack of pigment can be caused by damage to the skin or by skin conditions such as vitiligo.
We speak of excess hair when too much and too thick hairs grow in places where normally no or only thin hairs grow. There are two forms of excessive hair: hypertrichosis and hirsutism. They usually occur individually, but can also occur in combination.
Age spots are benign pigmented skin lesions where elderly suffer from. Skin areas that have been exposed to the sun, especially the face and hands, develop round or oval-shaped light to dark brown colored spots. The spots can be a few millimeters to a few centimeters in size.
As someone gets older, a lot changes in the skin. The upper skin layers become thinner and the number of blood vessels and sebaceous glands decreases in the skin layer below. This creates more space between the different skin layers. The amounts of collagen and elastin (the fibers that provide the firmness of the skin) also decrease, causing the subcutaneous connective tissue to lose its firmness. In addition, the skull shrinks with age, causing the skin around it to become looser. All of this makes the skin look and feel slacker and less resilient.
Endermologie (LPG) is dé behandeling voor een verslapte lichaamshuid. Een behandeling met endermologie is een vrijwel pijnloze behandelmethode, die zowel de huid als onderhuid en het onderhuids bindweefsel aanpakt. Endermologie verbetert de structuur van het bindweefsel, bevordert de doorbloeding en stimuleert de afvoer van afvalstoffen.
Coagulation therapy can be used in the treatment of couperosis and telangiectasia (conspicuous or burst vessels, see also laser therapy), milia (skin bumps), fibroids, (cutaneous warts), age warts, age spots and/or small skin imperfections. We also treat warts with nitrogen.
With cryotherapy (the CryoPen) pigment spots, age spots, age warts and common warts such as foot and hand warts can be removed in an easy, safe and painless way.
A small needle is used during the treatment. The tip of this needle heats up so that the interfering tissue can be specifically coagulated.
In general, this is no longer visible within a few days after the treatment. The number of treatments can vary from 1 to several. Usually 1 or 2 treatments are sufficient.
When can I be treated?
Coagulation therapy can be used in the treatment of rosacea and telangiectasia (conspicuous or burst vessels), milia (skin bumps), fibroids (cutaneous warts) and/or small skin imperfections. These are common and are usually slightly darker in color. They usually localize in the neck, armpit, décolleté and/or under the breasts.
The skin condition 'Dermatosis papulosa nigra' can also be treated using coagulation therapy. These small dark brown to black raised papules / spots mainly occur in people with pigmented skin. If you are not suitable for coagulation therapy, other forms of treatment can sometimes be chosen, such as laser therapy and/or cryotherapy.
The tissue is treated very precisely with nitrogen, which freezes the affected skin. A few days after the treatment, a scab forms under which new skin is created.
After 10 to 14 days, the newly formed skin becomes visible. Cryotherapy can be used for age spots, age warts, cutaneous warts and pigmentation spots on the face or on the body. Usually 1 to 2 treatments are required.
